    @I Are The Internets I'm gonna need your take on the Razzie nominations. I've essentially seen none of them, of course, but you've probably seen the majority of them. The one I have seen is mother! which, crazy as it is, has no business near the Razzies. Lawrence is very good in the film, whatever you think of it, and Aronofsky's visual style in the film is really visceral and raw. Again, I didn't particularly like the film myself, but it's not really the kind of movie that should get Razzies.

    The Razzie’s surprised me. It seems that the actual worst films aren’t getting all the nominations, but rather the more well known films that people didn’t like. Some of the acting nominations have no business being there at all.

    Well, it's nice to see that Logan and Get Out get some Oscar nominations considering they were both released early in 2017.

    With Logan getting an nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay it makes me wonder if the voters even read the source material. I mean, there is very little resemblance between Logan and Old Man Logan. The plot and premise of motivations of the main character is very different.

    They should just give the entire Dark Universe to GDT.

    Thank the Movie Gods, that Dundee thing is not a real movie, just a tourism viral stunt that will be a series of Super Bowl ads.

    Additionally, a new trailer is out for the adaptation of one of my favorite graphic novels:



    I'm still in disbelief that that small Image miniseries i randomly ordered when i owned my comic shop is becoming a movie. Looks pretty good too.

    Get Out - great
    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - really like it
    The Shape of Water - didn't get it at all

    I only have Shape of Water and Phantom Thread to see. Missed Lady Bird while it was here.

    Call Me By Your Name And 3 Billboards have been the best so far.

    You're the first person I've seen to have that opinion. Did you mean you don't get all the hype over the film?

    Yeah, I don't get the hype. The only thing it did was make me want to see a "Bioshock" movie.

    A lot of the nominee films are playing locally now- hopefully they'll still be there next week (busy with an event this weekend, and busy most of next Saturday as well- but that sat includes a morning screening of Labyrinth so it has that going for it ;) ).

    Anyone think The Last Jedi will be up for an Oscar?

    I still have to see everything except for Get Out and Dunkirk. I’m doing an Oscar marathon with my mates, so we’ll be watching as many as we can from almost every category. We did the same last year and it was pretty fun. I ended up liking quite a few films that I probably would’ve never given a chance.

    Last year I liked 6/9 of the best picture nominees, which is pretty good. Fences, Manchester By the Sea and Hell or High Water were the only ones that let me down. La La Land was my favourite. I had absolutely no interest in seeing it because it was a musical and I thought it looked lame. But wow, was I wrong! I ended up giving it a 9/10.

    I think they mean it was adapted from Children of Men.

    It’s not, but Williams is up for best score.
